Year of Exploration's Edge

From StarfinderWiki

Season 3 of the Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild campaign is referred to as the Year of Exploration's Edge.


Players can choose to advance the agenda of a faction during each scenario and receive rewards as their reputation grows with each faction.1

Metaplot overview

Rather than a single overarching metaplot as with the two previous years of Starfinder Society scenarios, the Year of Exploration's Edge features three separate storyline arcs. Scenarios in each arc are not written to be played in any particular order; they are linked thematically rather than ordered numerically.2

  • Frozen Ambitions (levels 1-6): focuses on Near Space
  • The Vast Experiment (levels 5-10): focuses on the Vast
  • Fleeting Truth (levels 9-14): focuses on the Pact Worlds system
